What our customers say

Great trip to the Isle of Mann to see the TT, highly exciting and adventurous trip it was, great professional crew and eager to please, well kitted out with waterproof suits and life jackets, definitely not to be missed, I will be back on Abhainn Cruises without a doubt..

Colm Murphy

Absolutely fabulous trip on the water today. Tim was so accommodating of my sons needs (quadriplegic CP). We all had a blast!!

Wendy Hendrick

Thanks once again Abhainn Cruises for an unreal boat trip over to the isle of man TT racing last Saturday morning. Due to the job i do i found them very accommodating as it was a last minute thing on my behalf. Also in terms of coming home it was arranged perfectly as i was able to change my journey times to suit myself without any hesitation and you don’t get to do that everyday. i found the journey safe, friendly and had loads of craic. I would highly recommend it to anybody.

Arnie Lutton

Unbelievable way to experience the water and the stunning coastline! Tim was a legend, great craic from start to finish and accommodating for all passengers! The trips are a rush but the views are something else. 5 star barely cuts it!
